Very nice! Too many great subjects and not enough time in one life time to cover them all. I am really keen to build one of the Zoukei-Mura renditions. 

Yes I fancy one of those too, when they do a late E I might build and F-4EJ from one.

Spitfires in general, as with any other fighter type, are eligible.

I might have to build a 109 and a Spitfire...although i am trying to focus on jets.

 

Is the Revell boxing of the F104 in Belgian livery considered an interceptor even though it has no rockets?

I nearly bought this for my second build in this GB but then found out that it's not a kit.

If that had been a kit I'd have let you do it here :D

A Belgian F-104 sounds like an interceptor to me :)

I fancy them too. How do you get a ZM Phantom in the UK?  Do I have to preorder from Japan?

There are some hobby shops selling them Chris and they are available on Ebay, just a matter of searching around, I know that Hannants don't stock them though.

I'm seriously thinking of jumping into this one. My plan would be the Tamiya 1/48 P-38G. The P-38 was originally designed as an interceptor before, like most fighters of the era, being drafted into the air-to-air role as well as air-to-ground. But the one I would be doing is the personification of "interceptor". I plan on making "Miss Virginia", the airplane Lt. Rex Barber flew to intercept and shoot down the G4M1 carrying Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto.

 

Just checking to make sure this qualifies. Thanks!

It most certainly does qualify and you're welcome to join us as soon as you wish Michael :)

Well, checked my stash and I don't have the TIE Intercepter.  So hit up both my LHSs and no joy.  Even did an online search and not much there for a decent price so will probably drop out of this as I don't have time to focus on a more involved build.

 

Have fun and I will be watching as I have a bunch of these kits in the stash to get to someday.

Sorry to hear you're not finding the kit you want Phil. Hopefully one turns up in your near future and in the meantime we can inspire you with what's going on here.
